you are the lostmystuff host arent you?

Well he replied so I guess we do this later this week at his request. I will report the event and get him on tape using my ACE and a PP as he likes the idea that he can LOL. Might as well recruit him into the hobby.

Chief insisted on a background check (linkedin.com) shows him as a professional and looks like insurance is his business. Google Earth is looking good for North Aurora... so yea I got this one Fogcity.

Now let me say I think what you have set up here is not only useful to the general public but down right fun! Life is good for you and Cheif say "you make um good website"

I would think you might like to see what conversations look like behind the scenes. You pretty much get disconnented at that point don't you?

Default Ring Found.... :)

but with a twist Chief says it don't count.







Kevin lost his platinum in his backyard while playing with his kids on a slip-in-slide. His lovely wife and he had rented a detector with no success prior to contacting lostmystuff.net

I run pinpoint mode on V3i in a grid search of the entire backyard while Kevin worked willy-nilly with my ACE 250 where he thought it might have fell. Discriminating out all but foil to nickel either one of the machines should have screamed if this platinum was in the lawn... it wasn't.

We sat and talked about the incident, his wife made burgers. We imagined the slip-in-slide to be harboring the ring somehow, we thought about the canopy that was over the deck (he climbed up to look) he took a pretty good spill when he flung it off so anything was possible. Then we spoke about the stone deck itself but he said he would have heard that bouncing around. I suggested waiting for fall to take down the vegetation around the bushes and look again. I remember saying, but those evergreens will never give up thier leaves.

Bushes ummm, we had laughed about it being in a bush earlier in the hunt. I said my good night and Kevin was very gracious about the EPIC FAIL but I guess those bushes just kept him going After I got home he called and sent these pictures.

moral of the story; shake the bushes

Kevin's yard was so clean! new build, one owner and a pleasentville fenced in lawn of perfection but the ring was in the tree

that's cool... I will keep watching for local action from your site. It was a nice evening and I enjoyed the hunt and the free meal.

Martini says if he knew there were burgers he would have went

You showing up and engaging in conversation ended up leading to the ring find. Just as good in my book as if you'd passed the coil over it.
